The sky is turning cloudy and it’s threatening rain but we decide to head down to Chiloé to see the penguin colony. The drive is several hours and requires a ferry to cross to the island but the sky is relatively sunny and clear once we hit Chiloé. The countryside on the north end of the island as we cross from the ferry landing to the penguins over on the other side is very nice and picturesque. Since we’re again on gravel roads once we get out of town, we stop often for pictures. The boat ride out to see both Magellanic and Humboldt penguins was really nice, definitely worth the drive and the highlight of the day. After lunch on the beach nearby, we head back because the drive is long.
